Happy Thursday dear stamping friends - the weekends coming!! I have three cards from SCS challenges to share with you today.
This week's CAS (Clean and Simple) challenge was to use Fall Colors - Kraft, red, vanilla and brown (orange optional).
I colored my stamp with Stampin Up markers, stamped it and then sponged a little orange over the forest floor. I used my Nestability circles to cut the image as well as a brown and red framing. I sponged everything with Tea Dye Ink and added a brown button!
My stamp is Birch Forest from Rubbernecker Stamps the card is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4 ".
Stamps: Rubbernecker - Trees, Birch Forest 66-01
Paper: Kraft, Vintage Cream - PTI, Close to Cocoa, Ruby Red - SU

I was honored when Betty asked me to make a card sample for her color challenge on SCS this week. The challenge colors were Cajun Craze, Baja Breeze and Wild Wasabi (SU) I didn't have Cajun Craze so I used Rusty Hinge Ranger Distress Ink for that color.
I stamped my trees on white, cut the panel with Labels Nine Nestabilities, then sponged over the trees with Baja Breeze and Wild Wasabi before taking it out of the die.
Betty always includes a dessert option with her challenge - something extra to do on your card if you want to - this week it was to use chicklets (single squares of letters making up a sentiment) or strip sentiments. I stamped Happy Thanksgiving, then cut it in half and mounted it separately.

And finaly, for this week's teaparty we're heading off to California - to have tea with BertLady and her two cats who recently moved there - you can read the whole story here
As soon as I saw the two kitties on Cindy's inspiration teapot - I thought of this great picture of my own two cats - Scout and Boo (named after characters in To Kill a Mockingbird) Boo is the one in back and Scout is in front (they were actually sitting like this on our diningroom table when I took this pic!!) Don't they look like they have little smiles on their faces?? They are letting BertLady's cats know they will be missed! The sentiment is from Free Spirit Sentiments by Waltzingmouse.
